The swine industry loses between $299 and $316 million per year in profits due to heat stress.1 When pigs are exposed to prolonged heat stress conditions, they release cortisol — a stress hormone — resulting in reduced feed intake, reduced finishing weights and, ultimately, reduced profits.
KemTRACE Chromium by Kemin is a first-of-its-kind chromium supplement on the market. Feeding supplemental chromium to pigs has been shown to reduce levels of cortisol and improve insulin functions in pigs during times of heat stress, allowing for better energy utilization under stress conditions. If left untreated, these heat stress factors can lead to weight loss and/or reduced finishing gains.
KemTRACE Chromium is a proven and safe, organic trace mineral for dairy, beef, swine and broilers. It’s also highly bioavailable, ready to aid your operation whatever the temperature.
